In a New York Posts Opinion article, we learn about a new congress proposal. Abigail Shrier wrote, “Sorry, Pelosi: Eliminating official use of ‘mother’ isn’t inclusive — it’s waging war on women“. She mentions that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi proposed to remove non-gender-inclusive language from House rules. She wants to remove words like mother, father, brother, sister, daughter, and son.
Shrier writes doing this radical move would be detrimental to society. Mother is not just a job that anyone can do. It attacks the family. Worse changing these simple words may endanger women. We may say words don’t mean anything, but in federal laws, words mean a lot.
Opinion on War on Women
I agree with Abigail Shrier. This attack of the familial gender rules is dangerous. By attacking these simple words, confusion reigns. The mother encompasses more than a word. It means taking care of children and raising them with love. I know confusion runs rampant in regards to gender. Honestly, I don’t care how inclusive Pelosi wants to make the house. Leave these family words alone. Those who truly struggle with gender identity figure it out with help, and how best to handle it with their family. We don’t need congress to invade our house and tell us how to speak.
